I just got a PS3, so I am starting to use Home, but I stopped playing AC2 months ago. Is there still interest in this? How about releasing stuff like this a little closer to the release of the game.
 
That said. I want Fallout 3 stuff on Home.  :-)

I seriously didn't even click play 'cause the screenshot on the player told me everything that I needed to know.

That actually looks kinda interesting. I haven't even loaded Home since it launched, except accidentally when they moved it to where the store used to be (fucking annoying) but I might give this a go. There's a surprising amount of content in there.
 
For everyone asking who uses home it seems to be the Europeans for some weird reason :S

Does anybody see the inherent weirdness of a virtual world within a virtual world? What's the purpose of escapism within escapism? That'd be like putting a sandwich in a sandwich: there are better things to put in there, and you're only wasting space.

That's a lot of effort for something in Home.  Too bad no one will ever see it.

Playstation home is such fail. I wish Sony would focus their resources on something else.

I suppose anything they put out for free to make Home better than it is, is always welcome.

After beating God of War 3, I figured I'd check out Home for the first time in months and there's actually a SHITLOAD of people there.

Instead of playing the game I can walk around some lifeless environment in Home and look at concept art....

I don't mind the idea of AC2 releasing some behind the scenes stuff, though I have some problems with this idea of putting it on PS Home.   
 
Isn't PS Home still in beta?? Last time I checked a month or so it was & with the tradition of many betas to completely wipe data before it goes gold/retail so doing anything with PS Home seems rather silly at least for buying anything. Also what about all the people on the 360 & PC who have been fans of AC2, guess they're left out of this, that or all the behind the scenes stuff is easily available online. As for the multiplayer game, meh I tend to do rather badly on the tower defence games so hopefully that will be separate from the rest of the package.

they obviously put a lot of time and effort into this. i just wish that they realized that not many people care about AC2 anymore. and no one cares about Home at all.

Ok, this is offering more than what I would expect, but this is still about 20 minutes of content.

All these negative comments about Home.  There are ALWAYS alot of people in home.  Hundreds.  Connected no matter when you get on.  If it was not economically viable to produce assets for home, developers wouldn't.  They do.  So it is. 
 
Go into home and start counting heads at the main lobby in the middle of the evening.  You will want to quit because you would not stop counting. 
 
The average person spends 60 minutes in home PER VISIT.  Imagine what that means for a vessel that is essentially an advertising tool for developers.  My dad has spent dozens upon dozens of hours in the poker room playing poker at EA's complex. 
 
 Home may not be for you, but it is far from a failure.

Everything thats in that pic, isnt telling you everything you need to know...so no....it didn't. Judging by that pic, I guess you could tell that it includes a TD game? Or had glpyh collections?

Huh, I totally forgot Home existed. Looks neat, though personally I'd rather just play AC2.

No I couldn't, though I didn't need to know that. But please do go on; what else was I thinking at the time, or  are you done telling me what I'm privately thinking? "

That space is great. Too bad that Home, as a whole is such a let down.
